ONE OF THE BEST LIVE GIGS ............,
This review is from: Live Chronicles (Audio CD)
This CD opens fast and furious and more or less stays that way.'Master of the Universe'is a track I cant stop myself from going back to over and over!But that does'n't mean I ignore any of the other tracks.Far from it.I had my doubts about this album to start with,-not anymore! I must say that having read ALL of M.Moorcocks Eternal Champion books,especially Hawkmoon and ELRIC-to whom this gig is dedicated to-I fail to be 'reminded' of Elric and his adventures.So to me this is quite simply a collection of 'ROCK YOU TO YOUR SOUL'Hawkwind songs(I use the word song somewhat loosely!).
Perhaps had I seen the stage show I would 'feel' a whole lot differently.Anyhow,this is an incredible part of Hawkwind and I am extremely glad I bought it.
The bonus CD is just that: a (big) bonus.With masterpieces such as 'ASSAULT AND BATTERY (on the human anatomy)'except here its title is 'LIVES OF GREAT MEN'.(trk.11). 14 wonderful bonus tracks making this excellent value ALL ROUND..!!....
